In June this year, CrimeCon will be coming to London. A full weekend event designed to indulge true crime fans with talks from expert speakers, presentations and demonstrations, immersive activities, and opportunities to meet podcasters, authors, and TV personalities. But CrimeCon aims to do much more than entertain.
The weekend is about bringing people together. Providing education, knowledge, and understanding. And it is an opportunity to provide support and recognition to those who have been the victims of crime, and to the many families who are still fighting for justice.
I wanted to share with you the story behind two people who were at the very first CrimeCon to ever take place in the UK, in London in September 2021, Marie McCourt and Fiona Duffy, courtesy of CrimeConUK.
“For over 30 years, Marie has searched, in vain, for her daughter’s body and campaigned tirelessly to prevent other families from facing the same horrifying fate, taking her fight to the houses of parliament. This is the incredible story of a mother, devastated by the loss of her daughter, who found the strength and determination to change the law.”
